Thukral & Thagra
UCCA, 798 art district, Beijing
Entering the exhibition room is like an overdose of sugar and candy. Pink walls, colorful wallpapers, gold and bling. What first appear to be a Bollywood wonderworld is in fact a story about loss, cheating and loneliness.
Thukral & Tagra tell a story about Indian men being established in the west, returning to India to get married to a local girl. Then they disappear with the money from the wedding, while the wife is left alone. What seems like a glamorous life is actually an empty and sad life.
